Holly Nicholson is the latest physiotherapist to join DM Orthotics (DMO), a Redruth-based company that designs and manufactures made-to-measure dynamic movement orthoses to help adults and children suffering from conditions like multiple sclerosis, stroke, cerebral palsy and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.
Holly specialises in both adult and paediatric neurology, as well as working in wheelchair services. Her special interest focuses on the management of complex disability, having completed a postgraduate certificate in the subject in 2016.
“My job is about making a real difference to patients’ lives by fitting them with bespoke DMO products that are individually made for them,” said Holly. “It’s incredible what can be achieved and very satisfying from a clinical point of view. I also do a lot of training – helping other clinicians develop their orthotic expertise.”
First established in November 2004 by DMO’s Chair, Martin Matthews, the company employs 55 people and exports all over the world.
“We’re delighted that Holly has joined our team,” said CEO Dan Severn. “Like the rest of us, she is passionate about helping people of all ages manage a wide range of physical challenges. It’s a rewarding job and one which suits her exceptional skills perfectly.”
Holly works predominantly in Hertfordshire and enjoys walking, cycling or working on her allotment in her spare time.
